2018 ENZO BIANCHI GRAN CORTE PROPRIETARY RED
Valentin Bianchi’s son Enzo was a visionary and winemaker at the estate for over 50 years, and his passion and determination set a precedent for the prestige of Argentine wines… Enzo Bianchi Gran Corte is a tribute to Enzo that is only produced in the best vintages from a high-elevation vineyard in Las Paredes known for bearing fruit with deeply concentrated flavors and supple tannins. The 2018 vintage is a blend of 43% Malbec, 37% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot, and 5% Cabernet Franc that emulates Enzo’s dedication in a riveting and memorable style.
Decanter, “First launched in 1994, this tribute to the historic director of Bodegas Bianchi is one of the most classical Bordeaux blends in Mendoza. Made with grapes from San Rafael, the 2018 blend is 43% Malbec, 37% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot and Cabernet Franc and delivers a compelling nose of red and blackcurrant, blackberry and fresh herbs, backdrop of spices, graphite and smoky overtone. Opulent but well-balanced with freshness and juicy tannins.” DECANTER 94 POINTS
Tasting Panel Magazine, “Intense berry color and a velvety texture; toasty and balanced, with notes of ripe plum, blackberry, and spice. 43% Malbec, 37% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot, and 5% Cabernet Franc” TASTING PANEL 94 POINTS
Vinous, “Mint and cassis lead the way on a nose that also delivers subtle notes of dark fruit and nuances from the aging process. In the mouth, it’s intense and structured around the lively freshness which enhances the tannins and brings energy to the palate. A concentrated, extractive wine, it’s still young but will improve greatly in the bottle. Drink 2023 – 2038” VINOUS 93 POINTS
